New Television

We got a new television this week because the old one (which wasn’t actually that old, only like 2 years) was playing up and we got a refund on it. The boy is currently playing with it and trying to set it all up. Looks good! New levels of laziness await!srsreality

Also, just an update… This is like the fourth time I’ve been made to watch the new Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer… forceawakenssloth

The Sloth Gift Guide 2014

It’s December! And that means it’s time to get onto your Chrissy shopping if you haven’t yet. Last year I posted the Ultimate Sloth Gift Guide, but each year more weird and wonderful sloth-related products and experiences seem to come into existence, so here’s my top-ten pick for 2014.

Number 10: Sloth Tops has you completely covered on this front… literally. This Majestic Sloth top is one of my favs.majesticsloth

Number 9: Sloth Wall Calendar for 2015

Lucy Cooke’s noble quest to make sloths part of everyone’s lives takes us into the future with her Hanging With Sloths calendar for 2015. The added bonus of seeing baby sloths on your wall all year round.


Number 8: Sloth Art

Etsy delivers the goods on this one. This beautiful sloth watercolour is absolutely fabulous.


Number 7: Sloth Hat

When you’re lazing around (or not?) this totally cute sloth hat is ideal for keep those little slothy ears warm.slothhat

Number 6: Sloth Clocks

Sloths have a habit of being late! Nothing wrong with that, but if you need to know the time and want to do it in lazy style, this funky vintage sloth clock (slock? cloth?) will set you right.  slothclock

Number 5: Sloth Onesie

For the intense sloth lover, you can’t go past this all-over sloth onesie from Kigurumi. Ideal for lounging, lazing, and sleeping… a sloth’s favourite activities. slothonesie

Number 4: Sloth Jewellery

Carry a little sloth close to your heart with this gorgeous sloth necklace from Etsy.


Or, if you want some finger bling, the sloth wrap-around ring is hard to beat. slothring

Number 3: Sloth Toy

Fancy your own Sueno or Duermo? This Wild Republic sloth is one of the most popular world-wide and you can cuddle him/her to your heart’s content.slothtoycuddlekin

Number 2: Meet the Sloths Series

Chill out one afternoon (or many) and have a marathon of Meet the Sloths. The amount of gasping, Aww exclaiming and heart-melting you will experience is like no other.


Number 1: Adopt a Sloth

Get the real deal through the World Wildlife Fund. You won’t get to take a sloth home, but you will be contributing to the conservation and maintenance of sloths everywhere, so that they can be around to enjoy for generations to come.


And finally…

Don’t forget to wrap your sleepy presents in some sloth wrapping paper, and send a sweet snoozy message on some sloth Christmas cards like these ones from Night Owl Paper Goods.


Happy holidays!

How to Train Your Sloth

It was great going out for dinner with my good friend last night. We talked for hours, shared a bottle of wine, and just had a really fantastic catch-up. Then I got home late and my sloths were all waiting for me in the bedroom so I just had to put a movie on for them. We watched How to Train Your Dragon 2, which I’d seen when it was in cinemas, but was just as good on small screen. Seriously, if you’ve never seen the first one, you NEED to get on it. My favourite animated film of all time. That’s right, ahead of all Disney films even. slothdragon

Started reading JKR’s pseudonym novel (under Robert Galbraith) The Cuckoo’s Calling today. Don’t normally go for crime stories but in this case I can make an exception :)chocslothsHP Trolley Witch with Chocolate Sloths! By S. Watercolour.


United Sloths of America

This week was the 13th anniversary of 9/11. Just thought it was worth a post. I didn’t know anyone involved in the tragedy that unfolded on that fateful day, but nevertheless still feel for all people affected by terrorism throughout the world. Right now in Oz there is a “high” terrorism risk, and whilst I’m not worried by that at this point in time, one still questions why people do the things they do.

World peace might happen one day! I hope I’m still around to see it.
